    a question for you guys, Tygon has always been the fuel line of choice for gasoline but it does tend to harden inside the fuel tank any suggestions for an alternate fuel line or how to prevent it hardening?

    I use vinton type b inside the tank. It has been a while since I used any as I started using fortitude tanks in all my planes. Type A vinton is a lot stiffer and will not work for a clunk line so make sure you use type B.
